On Thursday we are back at Lingfield ,for the start of the official All Weather season ,featuring two quality looking Listed races on the poly track .The main race of interest is 1 mile Fleur Da Lys Fillies Stakes at 3.10 .
12 runners declared for 1 mile fillies listed race at Lingfield .The three main contenders are Muffri Ha, Battlement & Mise En Rose .
MUFFRI HA : Progressive 4-Y-0 ,winning 4 out 18 .Been in excellent form recently ,winning her last two starts at Newmarket ,including winning 9 furlong group three Darley Stakes earlier this month .Obvious claims dropping down in class,on her All Weather debut, though faces no easy task, conceding 8LB to her main rivals .
BATTLEMENT : Improving 3-Y-0,winning 3 out 7.Has good record on All Weather winning 2 out 3 (211) ,including winning maiden over C&D at Lingfield .Also finished creditable 3RD in 7 furlong listed October Stakes at Ascot last time .Will need to show more improvement to land this listed contest ,though can't be ruled out .
MISE EN ROSE : Consistent 3-Y-0 .winning 3 out 12 .Has decent record on All Weather ,winning 2 out 4 (1313 ) .Also Shown some useful form on turf this season ,finishing close 2ND in group three Sceptre Stakes at Doncaster . Looked unsuited by the drop back to 6 furlongs last time ,when finishing staying on 3RD in Listed race at Newmarket .Should go well returning to this longer trip .
VERDICT : MISE EN ROSE looks solid, having shown some useful form this season in better races ,including finishing excellent 2ND behind SPANGLED in G3 Sceptre Stakes at Doncaster in September.The return to the All Weather over this longer trip should also suit .Odds around 10-3 look very fair value .
Muffri Ha looks the main danger if she can reproduce her best turf form on the poly track.She looked impressive last time in better race at Newmarket ,when beating Carry On Deryck in good style in Darley Stakes,though won't find things easy trying to concede weight all round .
